EMERALD BAY BENEVOLENCE FOUNDATION
Now, more than ever, communities need help.
Our primary focus is lending a helping hand to those unable to care for themselves: children, disabled and the elderly.
Our goal is to assist in crisis and enable people to become self reliant. We answer calls for individual needs and partner with local relief agencies by providing some funding as they provide services for our clients.
WHO WE ARE
The Benevolence Foundation’s primary focus is lending a helping hand to those unable to care for themselves: children, disabled and the elderly. Our goal is to assist in crisis and enable people to become self-reliant. We answer calls for individual needs and partner with local relief agencies by providing some funding as they provide services for our clients.
WHAT WE DO
BENEFITS TO INDIVIDUALS
Members of the committee interview individuals or families referred to the Foundation by local churches, schools, hospitals, safety officers, etc. to determine the most critical needs.
Following the interview, the committee will convene to discuss their findings and allocate funds based on need.
In some cases, necessary food, clothing, and medication will be purchased and given to the disadvantaged.
In other cases, utility bills, mortgage payments, rent, repair bills, will be paid directly to the supplier.
Families will be informed of educational and employment opportunities, crisis center intervention, and food and healthcare programs.
BENEFITS TO ORGANIZATIONS:
Depending on need and available funds, we give stipends to local charities which sponsor programs for the needy.
We recruit volunteers to assist in these organizations.
We also adopt a local church to provide Christmas for the needy.

Hundreds of service hours

Donors and volunteers united in a common goal can make the world a better place.
If you would like to share in the work of the Foundation, please consider bidding on items offered in the Auction and or becoming a Donor.
From your heart to theirs, your donations make a difference. Thank you!
We are an IRS approved charity; all donations are tax deductible. There are no administrative salaries, so your money goes directly to local people in need, specifically those living outside the jurisdiction of Tyler agencies. When tragedy strikes, as it can in any life, minimum wage earners especially need help to make it through the crisis.
